Callum Hudson-Odoi has lashed out at Chelsea teammates after their 3-1 defeat to struggling Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
A goal each from Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka, and Bukayo Saka ensured the Gunners ended their seven EPL games without a win.
Tammy Abraham scored a consolation goal for the Blues just five minutes before the final whistle as Frank Lampard’s men slipped to seventh on the table ahead of their final game of the year against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge.
The 42-year-old has already blasted his players after the game, however, Hudson-Odoi who came in at the start of the second half agreed with the manager over his colleagues’ approach. He said after the game:
“It feels like we let ourselves down. We know we can do much better. We should have put the same energy we had in the second half into the first half as well – we should have had the same attitude from the get-go.
“We started too slow, we all know that. We knew from the start it was going to be a difficult game no matter what. They’re Arsenal, they’re a good team.
“No matter where we are in the league we’re going to keep pushing until we get to number one and no matter what the game is, we’re Chelsea, we want to give our best every game no matter what.
“We don’t like losing. That’s the Chelsea mentality, we always want to win. So when we lose or make a couple of mistakes, we’re all disappointed with ourselves.
“When we win we’re always happy when we lose we’re disappointed, so we want to get back to winning ways and stay happy.”
Hudson-Odoi spent just 45 minutes on the pitch and assisted Abraham’s only goal in the game as they lost their fourth game of the ongoing season.
